Adding greens to a fresh tomato sauce is a surefire way to enjoy more flavour and lots of colour in your pasta dishes. For a bigger bite try substituting rapini for the Swiss chard.



  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Stir in Swiss chard, onion, garlic with broth. Cover and simmer for 4 minutes. Uncover and stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and anchovy paste. Let cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes or until tomatoes have softened.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water; cook pasta for about 6 minutes or until tender but firm (al dente). Drain well, reserving 1 cup (250 mL) of the pasta water.
  3. Toss pasta wtih Swiss chard sauce, adding enough of the reserved water to moisten if necessary. Sprinkle wtih Asiago, if using before serving.
  4. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
